Quick Lunch Ideas for Busy Mamas | Bianca Dottin

These days I’m all about quick and healthy meals for lunch. I’ve found over the last few months if I don’t have something on hand, I’m most likely going to skip over lunch which is never a good thing. If I skip lunch, my energy declines. Deadlines are missed and Tatiana runs circles around me. I was so happy when I came across the Tai Pei entrees on our last grocery shopping trip. I’ve always been a lover of Asian food so I picked up their Beef & Broccoli along with the chicken egg rolls to give them a try. The Beef & Broccoli is paired with a flavor-infused frozen fried rice that is so amazing. Here’s a few quick tips for choosing the best quick lunch ideas that are not only healthy but great for your budget too.

Tips for Healthy & Quick Lunch Ideas

1. Check the ingredients

The key to a healthy lunch are the ingredients, right? When looking for a quick lunch, read the ingredients to make sure there’s nothing but good stuff in there. All of the Tai Pei entrees are made with real, pure ingredients, and no preservatives or artificial ingredients. Once the entrees are microwaved, you wouldn’t even be able to tell it’s a frozen meal! The taste is so fresh and flavorful.

2. Read the prep instructions

When strolling the grocery aisle, make sure that you read the prep instructions. You don’t want anything that’s too difficult to prepare because you want to spend more time enjoying the meal than actually prepping it. The Tai Pei entrees are perfect because the bowls take about 5 minutes in the microwave (depending on the strength of your microwave) and the egg rolls only take 15 minutes in the oven.

You can make the egg rolls in the microwave too but I like the crunch that comes with making them in the oven.

3. Plan your meals in advance

I’m all about meal planning so that I’m not scrambling to figure out what I’m going to eat at the last minute. Tai Pei entrees make meal planning simple.

4. Consider your budget

Take you budget into consideration when doing your meal planning. We’re super strict about our budget this year and Tai Pei fits perfectly into it.

The Tai Pei entrees are great for family meals too! There are so many options to choose from that everyone in your family will find something they love. What’s even better is that after a few minutes in the microwave, the dishes are ready to serve.

    Planning ahead is so critical! If you don’t plan ahead, you eat whatever you have on hand, and sometimes that means bad choices. A little pre-planning and you save time later in the week, too. Great post!

    Have never had Tai Pei but they look really good and getting them at Walmart is perfect. I would get these for my son for lunch or when he comes home from school starving as usual.
